Emerge Aotearoa provides a wide range of community-based mental health, addiction, disability support, offender rehabilitation, wellbeing and housing services nationwide. We believe that everyone is capable of living full and rich lives in their communities of choice. In every aspect of our work we are committed to helping whānau be the best they can be.


Keynote Speaker: Hope Simonsen, the National Housing Manager of Emerge Aotearoa

Hope has spent the past 14 years in the housing sector. Her housing journey began with Housing New Zealand in 2005 when the agency received crown funding to build community housing providers and grow community housing supply. A number of organisations were established as housing providers as a result of this funding.  After seven years, she moved to work as a property consultant in the commercial sector with The Property Group and then worked for Community Housing Aotearoa for a year.  She now leads Emerge Aotearoa’s housing team, which provides emergency housing and support services and long term social housing for whānau and individuals from Whangarei to Christchurch.
